Ok the main main issues in 140.27 for me 32pfl5405h/05
* Intermittent sound STILL a problem, but occurs less often.
* Out of sync video and audio after approx one hour of watching movie file through USB.
Workarounds:- ( that work for me)
* for Intermittent sound a power cycle of TV every night.
* for out of sync video and audio,do a fast forward or rewind for a few seconds, restores the sync.
Its funny the Philips release notes say the issues were fixed in 140.27 and 140.23, but they still exist but less often, Weird !!
this is a bug fix release, there will be a new version that includes improvements such as those showing in our wishlist 2011?
Change Net TV to channel
If you want to change from Net TV to any channel (with browser-button), the screen is black and you have to restart the tv. Who did check the FW?? Please adjust as soon as possible!!! Unbelievable!
3D now much better
Did the 27 release do something with 3D ? I get much better 3D now when watching some of the 3D satellite channels, crosstalk appears to be cut down substantially (I have a 46PFL9705)
I am going to test some blu-rays as well.
btw: setting the display to its brightest makes 3D work a lot better too, maybe something for Philips to do; when you watch 3D can't you increase brightness automatically, eg: have a 3D preprogrammed display setting ?

Which type of tv do you use - perhaps this is observed by some other users?
Regarding sound problems, read also this.
By the way, I didn't pay almost 1kEUR to do any hokus pokus every few hours or every nigth befor going to bed. And what about older people who dont have enough knoledge about any hi-tec.

Due to what has been written about this firmware update for the 8000 and 9000 series I prefer to skip this update. The release notes lists fixes on bugs we currently not have.
Two issues in our television:
1. After watching NetTV, teletext is not possible anymore
2. TV stops when moving in browser's history or when clicking on pages (for example this forum)
The automatic update feature only worked the first time in September. One time we waited two weeks after official release, just to be sure.
We can live with these 'issues'.
Thanks for your recent large input 'Thanks for your great contribution in 2010!'. It's good to read that the Net TV forum is read by many many people and that responses are captured somewhere. I think it would be good to respond on the difficult questions as well: 'Will there be an info bar (now/next)'. If you simply don't reply a lot of negative stuff is written in the topics. Please be honost, if there won't be an info bar tell us, then we can close those chapters...
Keep up the good work!

Reason: original wording too negative
The firmware Q5551_0.140.25.0 should solve this problem:
TV will not go into standby after 10 minutes when the TV does not receive any signal.
My TV(32PFL7605H) will not go into standby after 10 minutes when the TV does not receive any signal from HDMI port. I have tried both the 140.25 and the 140.27 firmware...
Have I misunderstood the text or is the problem not solved yet?

as you can read 2 posts above, Philips is working at this problem...
It seems not possible to "Unhide channel" a hidden channel. There is only a menu item which let's "Unhide all channels". The previous software version also had this behavior. So if I would like to unhide a channel, I have to unhide all channels and then hide the not wanted channels.
If you have a look into the user manual you will see that this should be possible (see "Unhide channels").
I'm running 140.27 now. I have the same audio problem. Also version 140.25 was very bad. I hope Philips is going to fix it soon. I think it occurs the most on HD channels. It's terrible. Please fix it.
Yeah I think this is the cause of the intermittent sound problem, I think when the TV is trying to display a more software intense picture (HD or a some different setting to standard) when the sound problem occurs more frequently as there is a bug in a code.
